Description

A gourmet and aromatic Premier Grand Cru Classé of Sauternes

The estate

Built in the 18th century, Château La Tour Blanche is today home to the La Tour Blanche School of Viticulture and Oenology. A Sauternes First Classified Growth of 1855, the Château La Tour Blanche has belonged to the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region since 2010 and has recently dedicated itself to education, while also continuing to contribute to the history of the great wines of Sauternes.

The vineyard

The 40 hectares of the estate are located on a terroir subject to the influence of the morning mists generated by the two rivers, favouring the development of botrytis cinerea, the fungus that gives rise to noble rot. Château La Tour Blanche produces elegant Sauternes wines in the shady tranquillity of its cellars, bearing the colours of the appellation.

The vintage

The harvests, though disrupted by the rain, yielded a low quantity of very high-quality grapes but with low yields. The harvest was manual and took 3 sortings.

Winemaking and ageing

Ageing was carried out in new oak barrels.

Blend

Sémillon (89%)
Sauvignon Blanc (5.5%)
Muscadelle (5.5%).

Tasting

Colour
The wine is of a beautiful straw yellow colour.

Nose
The nose is intense, blending scents of lime blossom and orange blossom.

Palate
Generous and gourmet, the palate delights with its scents of tarte tatin, along with fruity and fresh citrus notes. The finish reveals powdery vanilla flavours.

To serve

For the best tasting, serve at 10-11 °C.

Storage

The Château La Tour Blanche 2020 can be laid down until 2042, developing beautifully in the bottle.
